Numerous jobs on my Gen 3 including

- Changed the wheels and tyres back to Hankook Dynapro
- Went for a spare tyre (Hankook), but it hadn't come in
- Replaced the Vacuum lines to the front hubs and re-fitted the Vac hubs, all working again
- Refitted the standard leather seats
- Gave it a wash

Changed out the headlight lenses. Our UV does a number on polycarbonate. Got these off Aliexpress: a.aliexpress.com/_mLcNDa6
Not the easiest to fit, if you're careful the rear shell doesn't get too badly damaged. Can do a quick write up on the process if others are interested.

I went and got it from the dealer.

On level ground, the seat position is actually spot on with the bulkhead in place (I'm 5'10") BUT I think I will need a sheet of stiff plastic or something to prevent chafing of the mesh against the seat back.  Has anyone found anything suitable?

The car is very good - unlike some Suzukis, the  clutch biting point is in a sensible place.  The engine thrums more then in a gen3, where it whines!

Update...I  managed to swap the wheels in between showers.  The locking wheel nuts they use now are horrid.  I have some Trilock ones I think I'll fit instead.

Thanks.

(TPMS query deleted as it's now sorted itself out and is showing pressures.  To start with, I had no warming lights, which was the main thing, but it showed "--" for each tyre even after a reasonable run.  The sensors in the replacement wheels are Hamaton EUPro 3.5 from Jimnystyle and pre-programmed, so they do work).

The new Bridgestone AT002 is a really good tyre, by the way.  Quite knobbly but not noisy at all on the road.
